Panarctic Flora


343231 Puccinellia sp. "Banks Island"


Central Canada: Rare
Mid Arctic Tundra: Rare


Geography: American Beringian: CAN.

Notes: The Canadian record is due to material from Banks Island in Nunavut, northwestern Canada (CAN; Gillespie in comment, unpubl.). The Banks Island plant is quite different from western Alaskan and East Chukotkan Puccinellia wrightii. It should be compared with Russian plants, especially with the Wrangel Island subsp. colpodioides (see above) which it resembles superficially. We enter it as species.
